There are generally two types of kitchen faucets in use today. Single-handle faucets are centersets where hot and cold are controlled by one lever or knob that's often part of the spout. The most common type of kitchen faucet is the widespread kitchen faucet. This type of faucet requires three separate holes and consists of the hot-water valve, the cold-water valve and the spout all being mounted separately.
In selecting a kitchen faucet you will want to consider the kitchen sink. Kitchen sinks usually come with from one to four or more holes to accommodate various types of kitchen faucets. If you are considering changing a faucet on an existing sink, it is better to select a faucet to fits the sink's current hole configuration. If you want to change from a three-hole type faucet to a single-hole one you will be left with open holes that will need to be filled. On the other hand if you try to knock out additional holes to change from a single-mount to a three-hole type faucet you run the risk of damaging an existing sink. Therefore you will find it much easier to also install a new kitchen sink and faucet together because you can choose any kind of kitchen faucet and sink that is compatible.
When it comes to price, the range of it can be very wide. There are those which are consider high end products with unique designs and valuable finishes like gold so they can go as high as $2,000. However, if you were to search through the internet or visit any of your local hardware stores, you may see that the price can range from about $50 to $600. However, unlike other products like electrical appliances, you cannot simply use the price tags to gauge the quality and performance of the faucets. Apart from your own budget, you should also consider the following factors very carefully.
